Minolta RF Rokkor mirror lenses on NEX-5N
How do the different Minolta RF Rokkor mirror lenses do on the Sony NEX cameras, especially the NEX-5N?
I don't have a NEX yet as I can't decide which one I want, but it will probably be a NEX-5N.
I have a 250/f5.6 and a 500/f8 and a MD 2x 200-L teleconverter (which is optically the same as the older 2x APO teleconverter and the newer 2x 300-L).
According to this http://wiki.vitorfonseca.com/Default...ookieSupport=1 list, the the tc should work well on the 500/f8 but with some image degradation on the 250/f5.6
What is the consensus on mirror lenses and teleconverters. The high ISO quality of the newer cameras should open up new possibilities. Will diffraction at f16 be a problem?
Finally, do you think that the 250mm plus a 2x tc is a silly idea. The combination is smaller than the 500mm but not by much.
Once I get a camera to try out the lenses on I will be able to draw my own conclusions and post them here.

Well all I can say; just try them on your next Nex!
Don't know about RF but do about MF/MD Rokkor lenses.
I like the Rokkor lenses in general but I can tell you that the 250 Mirror Rokkor is an exellent lens on M43.
So it probably performs even better on a Nex.
So small and so much reach. Ideal walk around lens.
MF lenses do work for some time pretty good on other systems as well.
But I am looking forward to use them on the Nex 7 with faster? focus (peaking).
